How’s this for a fresh catch? There’s a brand new fish and chips pop-up happening in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood.

Called The Happy Halibut, the operation comes from the team at Yagger’s Kitsilano, which happens to also be where the pop-up takes place.
The Happy Halibut came from a desire to create an opportunity to draw customers to Yagger’s Kitsilano for a quick dine-in or take-out during the lunch hours.
The sports pub owners say they “did some research and realized outside of Granville Island there aren’t any fish and chips shops in the Kits area.”
With a menu of what they’re calling “West coast fish with a little east coast flair,” the Happy Halibut is serving up orders of beer-battered Pacific cod, Sockeye salmon, and halibut with Old Bay tartar sauce, and salt and vinegar fries with a buttermilk apple slaw. There’s also seafood chowder and fish sandwiches on the menu, as well as beer specials.
The Happy Halibut is open Monday through Friday from noon to 3:30 p.m. and is family-friendly.
